Not this south. Not this year anyway. Happens occasionally but we've been bogged down in the gloom for months here. Georgia.We began hearing from folks in the US about the "winter that wasn't" in January. Seems the South had a false spring and blooms came out in early February. All gone now and crop failures are coming. I saw this happen decades ago and all y'all are in deep shit. Unless, of course, the coming plague cleanses the planet of it's most serious threat.View attachment 8304
It takes a ton of denial to dismiss the effects of the atmosphere's increased ability to hold thermal energy, beginning with the denial of the laws of physics.In 1816 there was The Year Without a Summer and I remember reading last century there was one Winter so cold that it froze the water between Manhatten and the rest of the city and people were able to cross over to Manhatten island by foot.
Back in the 1980s, they warned of global cooling and then it became global warming and now, climate change. For me, the weather hasn't changed much since as far back as I can remember. Yeah, some years are a bit hotter or colder than others and every few years, like clockwork, we get El Nino and La Nina.
I don't know what to call it but I am pretty sure we will be fine even hundred and thousands of years from now so long as we don't kill ourselves first.
I think that anyone who claims to speak definitively on the effects of increasing the atmosphere's physical ability to retain more thermal energy is being deceptive, whether consciously or unconsciously doing so.Basically, what do you think will happen with the Earth's climate? How bad and how soon?
